Olaplex is an amazing and clean hair brand that knows what they are doing. Their products are known for moisturizing, repairing, creating shine and overall healthier hair. It works for all hair types, is made up of clean ingredients and the key ingredient being bis-aminopropyl diglycol dimaleate which is the main ingredient responsible for repairing as well as, protecting damaged hair!
In addition to these products from Olaplex, we are loving the Number 7: Bonding oil.
- Protects Colors
- Fights Frizz
- Provides Heat Protection
We are all about protecting our hair from any damage and keeping it healthy. So if you've had your eye on any of the Dyson Hair products, this is your best chance to save because these items rarely go on sale! They started off with their Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer and put a twist on the hairdryer with the Dyson Airwrap Styler. Their newest product is the Dyson Corrale Hair Straightener, which looks so amazing because it is CORDLESS!
- No extreme heat damage & adds shine
- Uses air instead of heat to style
We always use an exfoliator on our body and face, but what about our hair? A scalp scrub is so important for unclogging and exfoliating our scalp after all of the products that we manage to put in our hair. That's why the OAUI Scalp & Body Scrub is so amazing because of it's many uses.
- Unclogs and gently exfoliates
- Moisturizes skin, scalp and hair
Skin Care & Makeup
The most popular item and what should be in your Sephora cart are the Dr. Dennis Gross Peel Pads. These peel pads are created for those who have skin care concerns like dullness, dark pigment spots, pores, fine lines and wrinkles. When we use these peels (or others) our dead skin cells are removed, and this allows new skin to regenerate. You know your skin type best, but we suggest that you start off with the lowest strength and build-up to the highest if you need it. Also make sure to avoid using other acids when using these products!!!!!
The pads come with 2 steps. The first pad is used and uses potent AHAs like malic acid and BHAs like salicylic acid to gently exfoliate the skin, refine pores, and support natural cell renewal. The second pad contains retinol and resveratrol for maximized anti-aging benefits and skin protection, stops acid activity to hydrate and smooth skin for a radiant complexion.
They come in 3 variations:
- Reduces visible signs of aging
- Reduces pore blockages and supports natural collagen
- Supports natural cell renewal
Drunk Elephant is one of our favorite skin care brands. They are committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefits the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of their formulations. They also just launched a hair and body collection which we cannot wait to try. However, if you are new to this brand and don't know which item to buy, go with the T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask. This is the holy grail to making your face literally as the name says, look and feel like a baby. This is created for someone who has similar concerns as we mentioned above such as dullness, uneven skin texture, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
- Resurfaces skin to reveal greater clarity, improved skin texture and tone, and a more youthful appearance.
- Exfoliates dead surface skin and supports natural surface turnover to visibly smooth and brighten the appearance of skin.
Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask is another popular item and a favorite. It is a rich combination of ceramides, vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory ingredients that help to combat puffy, inflamed, over-worked skin. This ultra-hydrating facial mask can be worn like a mask or just applied to your skin for extra hydration. We usually use it as a sleep mask and apply it also to our undereye area. This little tube works magic!
- Delivers rich hydration
- Radiant complexion finish
Summer is coming up and even though you should ALWAYS be wearing SPF. Sephora just came out with this amazing Sun Safety Kit, which contains 13 mini sunscreens for you to try and figure out which ones you love!
- Protects our skin from sun damage
If you want to have that bronzy glow but without the sun. These are the products we use to achieve that!
Samantha uses the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. She has been using it for years and still loves it! It contains 3 shades of highlighter and 3 shades for contouring, giving you enough options to play around with.
Adelynn uses the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand. It comes with a sponge applicator so it's easy to apply and I'm telling you guys, it leaves a flawless finish. To finish off my look I add the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Wand and I have it in two colors: Peachgasm & Goldgasm.
- Achieve a bronzy glowy look without the sun
- Contain no cruel ingredients
We CANNOT live without lip balm. We carry it in our bags, scrubs, car, basically everywhere.
As we age, our lips get thinner due to a decrease in collagen production. Think about it, we use our lips to speak, drink, kiss and these constant lip movements aren't helpful for this delicate area. So the best thing you can do to prevent signs of aging is to moisturize your lips (and this is the same for your face and body). Another benefit of using lip balm is that it gives your lips hydration which causes them to appear plumper.
The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is a Korean Beauty Favorite. It has an amazing mix of strawberries and raspberries smell and contains Vitamin C and a bunch of antioxidants. We love it the most because it contains Hyaluronic acid which moisturizers your lips as you sleep. It comes with this cute lip applicator so that it is mess-free when applying.
The Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm is their newest addition to their brand line. It is part of Sephora's Clean beauty, which means it is formulated without any toxic ingredients such as sulfates, parabens and more. It's packed with Shea and Murumuru Seed Butters which helps hydrate, soothe and heal.
The Biossance Rose Vegan Lip Balm is one of Adelynn's favorite additions to her skincare routine. This lip balm contains Wakame Algae and Hyaluronic Acid, which will help restore the look of lip plumpness and visibly contours your lips. It also smells sooo good because of the rose absolute that it contains.
- Eliminates Dyrness
- Helps with fine lines
Now that you have moisturized and plump lips, we need to give you some color. This lip is our go-to lip for day and night. It's a dreamy nude-pink and is a perfect match for everyone, yes EVERYONE. We hate when lipsticks dry out our lips, but this one provides just the right amount of hydration.
The best part is that you can use the liner, to overline your lips and it gives you the plump Kylie Jenner look without the needles. Make sure to listen to our secret tips on our Lip Fillers Podcast episode here.
